LEARN MORE & APPLY

The IM4US ANNUAL CONFERENCE is a unique educational experience for healing professionals, administrators, students, advocates, and the community to learn about affordable integrative approaches to common health conditions, share evidence-based best integrative practices, and be part of a like-minded community for activism around integrative medicine for the underserved.

Integrative health and wellness, when incorporated in a primary care framework, has the ability to improve outcomes and reduce costs. This is even more pronounced in underserved settings where these approaches can also reduce health disparities. This year, we have the privilege of being in Washington D.C., where we will be able to interact, learn, educate, and make connections with organizations, policymakers, and legislators working to attain health equity.  Participants at this conference will have the opportunity to gain the tools they need to take action either nationally, or in their own communities and locales.

Conference Objectives:

  • Foster community among all of those who have a commitment to providing integrative health care for the underserved (healers, educators, administrators, researchers, advocates, policy makers, patients, etc.)
  • Emphasize practitioner and health worker wellness and self-care as a means to avoid burnout, improve satisfaction, and find joy in work
  • Develop skills, disseminate practical information, and share strategies for providing quality care for the underserved
  • Highlight existing sustainable health care models and innovative structures of practice that embrace an integrated approach and increase access to care
  • Build an international movement that advances policy and provides advocacy for those that face injustice in health care due to racial, socioeconomic, or other factors
  • Shift the paradigm in health care towards one of wellness, prevention, lifestyle changes, patient empowerment, and self-care
  • Feature cutting-edge research and welcome investigators who will further the field

 

Here's what past attendees had to say:

- "I cannot recall the last time I felt so much internal peace and joy. Thank you for putting together a wonderful group of speakers and activities in a setting where we could collaborate freely."

- "Once again what a delightful event. As a attendee and presenter it was seamless!"

- "My first IM4US conference was excellent and inspiring; thanks for bringing so many wonderful people together."
